August Smart Lock

Finally a smart lock that doesn’t look like one, the August Smart Lock eliminates the need for keys, instead relying on something just as ubiquitous: smartphones. August gives you full control of who can and can’t unlock your door, going as far as to permit schedules during which individuals (for example, a housekeeper) can gain access to your abode, all accomplished using encrypted signals over Bluetooth 4.0. Otherwise, it runs on batteries for persistent operation through power outages, sends you a reminder when they’re running low, keeps logs on who entered and exited, displays its locked/unlocked status via LED indicators, and sports a gorgeous but discreet anodized aluminum design that’s sure to spruce up any door.

Grab one at August or Amazon – $250
